People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.

~~~Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution

This beet powder has been my new addiction. I mix one sports endurance pack of BeetElite a day into water with my clean aminos. Before you take any nitric oxide supplement, read up. There is only so much you can take in a certain period of time. Beets are so good for you and this stuff is easy to drink. I love it! It’s almost 2 bucks per packet at Whole Foods, but when it comes to increased endurance levels, no price is to steep.

I linked two good articles below about the nitric oxide. So basically, what can it do for you? Well… increase recovery rates, reduce fatigue, improve endurance, increase blood flow, help burn body fat, increase muscle pumps, improve sex, regulate brain activity, release more adrenaline, and help you live longer! Yup… the package doesn’t lie… my beet powder is indeed a superfood.

I did love the new Suicide Squad movie, but I guess I’m just twisted like that. It was clearly a setup for another movie about Harley Quinn and The Joker. The movie was a very romanticized version of that whatever it is relationship (which I kinda liked). In the comics, The Joker basically treats Harley Quinn like crap.

My favorite movie scene was the vat scene. If you didn’t see the movie, then I’m sure you could give a flying f*#k about the content of that twistedly, romantic, only in the movies scene, but basically… all you need to know is that in “real life” (aka the comics)… The Joker actually pushes her ass into a vat of acid.

Worth a watch for those who care.

•♥♦•| He would never jump in a vat of acid to save her because she can’t swim. That’s 2 risky. He could die. He should let her die right??! |•♦♥•

Come Hell or High Water

I totally snapped a sneaky pic of this cute kid at the gym a couple days ago. I had to! When he and his sis strolled in with their dad, they had all their [my dad is addicted to the gym] gear in hand… lil collapsible chairs in a bag, fly workout pants, headphones, sunglasses, and an iPhone [to cope with the hours of gym time entertainment they have to endure as lil rats]. Parents with no excuses. I love it! Lots of kids trickle in and out of Mandrill’s.

••| WHEN DAD IS ADDICTED~ this isn’t my kid. |••

It’s been a little over a month since my son became a full fledged gym member. It was time and he’s doing very good. I’m proud of him! He’s done hours of cardio over that time and wants to! I can even see a lil slimming down there. I wish I would have known about the gym since I was his age. He’s all happy with his very own “member number” that he gets to punch in now. He’s been punching in mine for me for a few years.

If you recall… a year ago, he asked the owner of my gym when he could workout.***You can listen to this cute clip*** I completed his membership application and was reminded about “the rules and regulations.” I think I’ve broken several over the years, but shhhhhh… don’t tell on me! Imma be there and now so is my lil man [for evening workout #2] come hell or high water.

•••| It’s that moment when a gym buddy notices something just isn’t right when you step on the gym floor with no headphones blasting because all be damned if they are usually attached to you and you forgot them at home and yep your pal springs into action saving the day with a “but I’ve know you since way back and you need these extra Skull Candies I have today, which you will actually be impressed with” and then you look super happy, smiling in relief. Yes… that was a run on sentence and he didn’t know he became a hero in that very moment lol or… maybe he knew?!? Hallelujah!!!!!!! Thank you Bobby! |•••
